Welcome to the Canon Forum!
There is a Wind Filter function you can enable in the menu.

Thank you, I found it. If I shoot in scn will it still work? I am going on an african safari and want to avoid that awful wind sound, just wanting the sounds of the jungle.

When on safari, the wind blowing into the mike is annoying, is there away to mute that?
To deal with this, you will likely want an external microphone (the Røde "Videomic" series is very popoular... these microphones include a mounting bracket which slides into the hot-shoe -- where you'd normally attach a flash).
AND... you also probably want to put a wind muff on the microphone (these things are also commonly called a "Deadcat") -- it's the furry thing you see wrapped around microphones when using them outdoors. The Deadcat doesn't come with the microphone... it's sold as an optional accessory. Their sole purpose is to reduce the wind noise that a microphone would otherwise have if used in a windy environment.

Mike, you are probably correct about that function deliberately being left out. So much for customer satisfaction.
Magic lantern is now available for the 70D. It will unlock many features for you.

Thanks Mike. It would be nice to know what link that is but I will have to search for it. Does Magic Lantern cost?
Magic Lantern is free. The link removed was the Magic lantern homepage. Just do a Google search.
